Overview of Information Security for New and Non-IT Project Managers

white paper
by Rubaiyyaat Aakbar

Information security is all about protection of information and its critical elements (confidentiality, integrity and availability), including the systems and process that use, store and transmit that information. When it comes to information security, what exactly does it mean to us as project managers? This author helps you put the right procedures in place.

Are You Creating Purpose?

by Andy Jordan

Have you been assigned to a project that “nobody cares about"? As project managers, we quickly learn that we don’t often get to pick our projects. But they're still important—and it's up to you to find purpose in everything.

The Most Important Question New PMs Need To Ask

by Andy Jordan

How do new project managers determine whether issues are something they should worry about or whether they are simply “noise”? In the absence of experience, try this approach.

What Do Your Colleagues Think of You?

by Andy Jordan

Every experienced project manager can look back and cringe at some of the things they did when they were inexperienced. Whether you are a young, new or stubborn PM, you always need to recognize your ability to learn and grow.

Topic Teasers Vol. 143: Working With Mixed Process Teams

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I am going to head a team on a large, corporate project that will involve multiple teams. The problem is that we are not all going to be using the same methods of project management, and I am concerned about how we will be able to work together if we are not all following the same processes. Is it possible for various parts of the organization to work in different ways and still produce a good product?

Risk Acceptance, Not Risk Ignorance

by Andy Jordan

Too often, acceptance of a risk becomes “pseudo-ignorance” because the owner doesn’t review the risk on a regular basis to ensure that nothing significant has changed. But while acceptance is a valid risk management strategy, ignorance isn’t!

Don't Forget Standard Deviation!

by Andy Jordan

Project managers often focus a lot on developing estimates, but sometimes they ignore the most important aspect of those estimates. Let's discuss the importance of standard deviation.

Back to PM Basics (Part 6): How Long Will My Project Take?

by Bruce Garrod

How do we differentiate between effort and duration? What estimating techniques can we use to determine how long work will take to complete? As we continue to build a foundation of project management knowledge, we explore this crucial aspect of project plans.

How Do You Prepare PMs for an Adaptive World?

by Andy Jordan

Development paths for new project managers used to be straightforward, but now it’s not so easy. Project management is changing, and with that change has to come an evolution in how new PMs are trained and developed.

Making Governance Your Friend

by Andy Jordan

Governance can sometimes feel as though it’s judgmental of us as individuals, questioning our ability to manage projects. If that happens, it’s up to project managers to address it.

Have You Made This Scheduling Mistake?

by Andy Jordan

Does a project delay of a few days really matter? Yes! Schedule delays are often treated as no big deal, but that’s a dangerous approach. We need to view the schedule as a guideline, not as a weapon.

How to Successfully Share Resources (Part 2)

by Andy Jordan

Minimizing the number of times that a resource has to switch between projects and activities can help mitigate negative impacts, but it’s only a short-term solution. There also has to be a permanent solution—or the project risks failure.

How to Successfully Share Resources (Part 1)

by Andy Jordan

Many project managers find themselves with team members spread across multiple pieces of work. How do you manage that effectively, especially for new project managers?

What Risks Actually Need Identifying?

by Andy Jordan

Risk identification doesn’t seem like the most complex part of project management, or even risk management. But it can lead PMs down a dangerous path. Why? Risk identification isn’t about identifying every risk that exists.

Back to PM Basics (Part 5): All Project Plans Aren't the Same

by Bruce Garrod

Too often, organizations start project work instead of developing a plan. This has to stop! Kicking off a project can be an overwhelming feeling for individuals new to project management (and for a lot of us experienced PMs, too). Keep these tips on planning and scope in mind to help ease your stress.

Back to PM Basics (Part 4): Defining Success & Objectives

by Bruce Garrod

The question “What is a successful project?” may appear obvious. It's not. This series continues to build a foundation of PM knowledge. This installment will address defining project success, differentiating business objectives from project objectives, and introducing the concept of a project plan.
